    BEITBRIDGE –
    The MP for Beitbridge East, Albert Nguluvhe has undertaken to approach Government for a lasting solution to the floods disaster in the border town that has become a perennial problem.
    He also deplored the squalid conditions in which some Beitbridge council employees are staying in.
    Some 844 residents from the suburb of Dulivadzimu were left without food and clothes after their houses were flooded.
    Nguluvhe said his priority is for the victims to get water and chances are that if they don’t get water, there will be a cholera outbreak.
    The floods overflowed the banks of Wamulala Stream and into the houses.
     “I will engage the Ministry of Local Government and bring the Minister onto the ground to see the situation for himself so that we can have a lasting solution. We need engineers to work on this problem,” said Nguluvhe.
    He said that the situation where council employees are staying in crowded hostels in the area must be attended to and resolved.
    A resident who sells second hand clothes, Sarah said she was affected by the situation.
    "We share one small toilet and bathroom and hygiene wise we are at a risk. I had to escape from my flooded room through the window. I appeal to authorities to relocate us from this place," she said.
